In 2003, Peter Brandon made his first trip to Nashville armed with a backpack full of homemade demo CD's and a dream. Little did he know then that he would soon be living out his dream of being a Hillbilly Music Recording Artist.
"It has been such a long journey and it's been a lot of hard work, but at the same time it feels like it's just flown by", claims the six-foot-five California native.
In the summer of 2009, Brandon released his third studio album "For Anything", and penned 9 of the 10 songs. The lone cover, a hillbillyfied version of Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train", is the first cover Brandon has recorded on any of his albums. The first single was "In The Name of Freedom" that was a hit in his live concerts.
A true showman, Brandon's live shows are full of energy and surprises. His songs take the audience on an emotional roller coaster of highs and lows, and connect with them in a very genuine way. He has headlined many of Southern California's most sought-after venues and shared the stage with many well-known national acts, including Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Gary Allen, Dierks Bentley, Hal Ketchum, Cross Canadien Ragweed, The Mavericks' Raul Malo, Jimmy Wayne, Mark Wills, David Allen Coe, the legendary Glen Campbell and Country Music Hall of Fame members Asleep at the Wheel.
"There is nothing like the thrill of performing live and sharing my music with others," says Brandon, "I have a great group of friends that have a blast making music together. The fun we have on stage really shines through to the audience, because it is sincere and genuine. We love what we do, and I think it shows."
The title track of Brandon's second album, "Drive Real Fast", was a breakout song for his career. The single received national radio airplay and was nominated for many awards including an LA Music Award for Song of the Year. It was also featured in many NASCAR Sprint Cup race commercials and in partnerships with 14-time Funny Car Champion, John Force.
In addition to his many concert appearances, Brandon has cherished opportunities to reach out and help those in need. He has partnered with many organizations, including The Finally Home Foundation, The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, OC Walk to Remember, GINA for Missing Persons and John Force's ChiPS for Kids (to name a few).
As Brandon's career continues to move forward, he credits his faith, as well as his family and friends for their love and support.
"I am truly having the time of my life," Brandon exclaims, "It's been an incredible ride and I am thankful for each day I have been able to live this dream. God has blessed me with a great family, amazing friends, and I have been fortunate to have met some incredible people along this journey. I couldn't ask for anything more. I am one lucky guy!"
